    Warranty and pirated software
    I understand one can get iWork off of torrent sites. If I get a pirated copy, will my Mac's warranty be voided?

    If I were you I wouldn't even think about any pirated software.

    Also things of that nature are not discussed on this Forum.

    Why?

    Is this a morality issue, or are there problems with pirated programs? Will I still have my warranty?

    Do you not know it’s illegal?

    Topic will be locked soon, as it is against the rules to discuss it.

    Why? Because the forum rules state rather openly that we follow US law here, and since piracy is theft...

    You know? Go ahead and download it. Maybe you'll get one of the 2 existing trojans for OS X.

    Let me tell you, those trojans are not fun to have, friends of all sorts have gotten them.

    And with that last post, you got your answer so I am closing this thread. Piracy is against the law. Whether if voids your warrantee or not, it's against the law and we allow no discussion here at Mac Forums that is against USA Law. Pay for the software. iWork is only $79. It's not like it's CS5 suite or something! A VERY fair price for all you get.

    Thanks to all the users for the excellent posts warning the OP not to pirate.

    And a PS, that DNS Trojan the other poster was talking about is very for real and usually comes with pirated copies of iLife and iWork.
